PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Marlene has been promoted to managing director of the ‘Top Girls’ employment agency and is celebrating with some distinguished guests. Her “if you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, who would it be” party is attended by women in legend or history who offer perspectives on maternity and ambition. In a time warp, these ladies are then transformed into her co-workers, clients, and relatives as we transition to London in the Thatcher years. Marlene, like her famous guests, has had to pay a price to ascend from proletarian roots to the executive suite. In many ways she’s become, figuratively speaking, a male oppressor: even coaching her female clients to adopt odious male traits. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, this seminal play of the modern theatre poses complex questions about feminism, power, motherhood, agency, and the meaning of success.
